222. Wayne Walker

Out of the state of Idaho, Wayne Walker would spend all of his fifteen seasons in the NFL as a Detroit Lion and was a very rare dual threat as a Linebacker and Place Kicker.  Walker was a three-time Pro Bowl selection who would be named the team’s Defensive MVP in 1968.  Walker had 14 career Interceptions, and might be the most underrated player in Lions history.
